They do the same thing in posts over at tapersection...


Why would that site even stream unreleased stuff now, like they used to... (a few songs at least), with so many giving the game away?

I have to wonder how much longer we'll enjoy relative freedom on the internet to share and what not...
the big clampdown is surely coming.

If we were all part of the Audience-Experience... Why can't some people simply be happy with being able to DL the AUD-experience... Some people just want to f**k it up for the rest of us

I guess we'll never know...

I remember 15 years ago, when the supermarkets had cereal boxes that were shrinkwrapped.
Inside the clear wrapping, attached to the boxes of (in this case) Addams Family Cereal were 1 of 4 different little flashlights,
in the shape of a hand (Thing), Cousin It, Lurch, or Uncle Fester.

Then, a sticker on the shrinkwrap had the word "Free" in big letters along with "reusable flashlight - Collect all 4"

I know because I still have a set of unopened boxes.

Well, at the big Cala supermarket at California near Van Ness Avenue, a lot of the shrinkwrap had been torn open and the flashlights taken, presumably by shoppers who were tempted by the cool premium, perhaps feeling justified by the word "free".

Just as I pondered the razzled shelf of rifled packages, I overheard a fracus going on between an irate lady with a full shopping cart and the store manager over one of the flashlights she insisted was "free".

She refused to see it their way, and was subsequently asked to leave, without getting to purchase all the stuff she had in the cart.

Maybe she and others remember when candy bars were a nickel, and Craker-Jacks had little plastic and even tin toys years ago instead of paper prizes like they do now.

But then, babies started swallowing them, and lawsuits changed what could be put in a box for free.

The flashlights were too big to swallow, but you rarely see any premiums shrinkwrapped to the boxes with a sticker that says "Free" anymore.

Of course, Americans and people all over - have come to expect a lot for as little as possible, living on borrowed credit, spending as little as possible on cheaply made goods rather than spend more for better goods.

They will spend 2 hours figuring a way to not have to spend a dollar.

I understand that. My Great Grandmother would take me when I was 5 miles and miles out of her way to shop in some cruddy little rumage shop for old dishes and what not, and she would sometimes erase the price off an item and pencil in a much cheaper amount.

Save two bits or something.

It's the psychology of it.

There's no real future in it, altho when the geeks are 80 years old they'll have lots of stories to tell about how they used to download music for free!

To all involved, yes I did try to find out the secret and replied to the post, I apologize for that to all me Deadhead bretheren.

If you'd like to attack me do so at etapsi416 at that old yahoo and not on the Archive. Had enough of the bad vibes on here for a lifetime.

Happy Trails

you really don´t need to know that secret

you can get all those boards elsewhere, though many auds are much better sounding than sbds. they are like more natural, raw, stronger. i´d rather listen to grate aud than to grate sbd anytime

To everyone, AG is kind of new to these parts but has been appearing in some of the Chatzy groks as of late and is a very solid individual with insightful comments. Don't get too harsh on him for this one. The original poster, however, please feel free to let loose.
